The Erebus Invasion - Patch v0.21

Patch News -

Intro

Champions! It's time to show you how much the Skydome had changed!

Erebus the Shadowbringer and his Shadowlings are invading the Skydome arenas, join your team and defeat them to get the chance to send them to the enemy arena. Starting 3 minutes into the match, portals will appear in the jungle and Shadowlings will begin to invade the arena, defeat them and use their tokens to invade the enemy arena and hinder your opponents. By defeating Shadowlings you decrease the maximum life of Erebus when he spawns. 15 minutes into the match Erebus invades the battlefield with his Shadowlings, corrupting the entire Greek jungle area with its shadows. The maximum life of Erebus is based on the amount of Shadowlings defeated until its appearance.

This along with so much more comes with this patch!

Known Issues

Tutorial

  • When starting the Tutorial from part 2 it will be missing the prebuilt structures, this does not apply if you start the tutorial over from scratch.
  • The tutorial progress stops after defeating the Titan in phase 3. This occurs rarely, the solution to this is restarting the match.
  • Tutorial progress will stop after defeating the 3 minion waves in phase 2. This only occurs if you stay inactive for 3+ minutes.

Egon Ability Lock

Extremely rarely there will be an issue with Egon that will lock abilities and attacks.

Victory Poses

The game may lock the person(s) on the victory pose screen. The current resolution to this issue is to restart your game.

Invisible Players

Other teammates or enemies may appear invisible to the person(s) effected. This is a rare occurrence.

In-game prices using incorrect symbol

Purchasing currency in game currently displays $ instead of €. Redirection from our game to our website will use the correct currency sign.

Wave progression bar on reconnect

The bar may be stuck visibly on "preparing" when reconnecting matches. This resolves itself after the ongoing phase changes.

Match Reconnection nearing the end of the match

On loading a match there is a chance that reconnecting to a late match will cause your game to lockup. The current resolution to this issue is to restart your game.
